read you president obama's quote here, so you get a contrast between the n.r.a. and president obama: cenk: so, joe let me start with you on this one. it looks like president obama as usual says ok, it's incredibly weak and watered down, but i'll take it. later on, he seemed to say that he would champion it whereas the n.r.a. says great, we got you to water it down completely, we till won't take it. isn't this a microcosm of what's been happening between conservatives and progressives for at least the last 12 years? >> well, and even more acutely over the last four to eight years, or four to six years so far, because every time a compromise gets proposed that would move legislation forward to actually what the people want, not so much what democrats or progressives want, but what the people want, it seems the forces on the right manage to throw sand in the gears, water things down, monkey it up and what we're left with is not even half a loaf. at this point i guess president obama is reading the handwriting on the wall in that this is probably a lot further than many people expected
